Ship Facilities


When it comes to meal times onboard Queen Elizabeth, there’s no chance of guests going hungry. With classic dishes and fare from around the globe, each and every guest will find something to delight their taste buds. In addition, with a range of both included eateries and speciality restaurants, there’s somewhere to eat for every occasion.

  • Britannia Restaurant- this grand main restaurant spans two decks and offers exemplary dining as standard.
  • Queens Grill and Princess Grill-exclusive suites with marble bathrooms, personalised stationery and butler service in the highest categories. Exceptional menus and sweeping sea views grace the intimate Grill restaurants, regally located on Deck 11, where sophisticated creams and browns glitter with splashes of gold and crystal. Doors open out onto The Courtyard from where steps lead you to The Grills Upper Terrace. The adjacent Grills lounge and Grills Terrace provide even more exclusivity. The lower terrace is available for the enjoyment of all guests.
  • Lido restaurant- enjoy casual dining all day in this restaurant. With stations ranging from fresh salads and pasta to pizza and desserts, as well as themed dining from Mexico, America and more, you’ll be going back for seconds (and maybe even thirds!).
  • Golden Lion Pub- if you’re missing home, then come for a slap-up pub meal that will make you feel like you’re right back in your local.
  • The Verandah- open every evening and lunchtime during sea days, guests can enjoy succulent steakhouse classics for an additional price.


After a busy day of shore excursions or enjoying your downtime on the ship, what better way to relax than making the most of the onboard entertainment? Whether you’d like to enjoy a show, listen to live music or simply sit back and sip your drink in good company, Queen Elizabeth has the perfect spot just for you.

  • Gin and Fizz- a stylish bar serving premium gins, prosecco and champagne.
  • Queens Room- The Queens Room covers two decks with a 1,000-square-foot dance floor. This elegant room displays pictures and murals of royal palaces and naming ceremonies. A real highlight is the Royal Standard presented to the original Cunard Queen Elizabeth by Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, when she named the ship in 1938.
  • Royal Court Theatre- The theatre is art deco in style and features private boxes with a capacity of 800 for the spectacular shows on offer.
  • Garden Lounge- In this lounge and conservatory, inspired by the UK's Kew Gardens, Cunard host their "Supper Club" with dancing, music and taster menus.
  • The Yacht Club - previously known as Hemispheres, this chic space transforms to a nightclub, with silent discos on select evenings


Cunard offer a children's programme for younger guests aged 2-17 years, making this a fantastic family holiday. Clubs include The Play Zone (2-7 years), The Kid Zone (8-12 years) and the Teen Zone (13-17 years) which each host facilities, group games and heaps of fun under the supervision of Queen Elizabeth's experienced Youth Team. Queen Elizabeth also runs a complimentary Night Nursery if you are looking for an evening off to head out on that well-deserved date night. This is for children aged 12 months to 23 months, but has a limited number of spaces, so book your space quickly to avoid disappointment!

Things to do


If you’d like to use your free time onboard to relax, there are plenty of spaces on the ship perfect for just this. The two pools (the Pavillion Pool which is family-friendly, and the Lido Pool which is adult-only), surrounded by sun loungers, are ideal for cooling off in the water and soaking up the sun. For an escape from the outside, head indoors and seek out the tranquil library, challenge other guests to a game in the card room or browse the shops and pick up a tax-free holiday treat.

Those guests wanting to up the pace slightly can enjoy the games deck. This concept dates back to the original Queen Elizabeth and features games inspired by those from the 30's, including bowls, croquet and paddle tennis.

Spa and Fitness

Guests may want to stay in shape during their time onboard Queen Elizabeth and one way to do so is through one of the sociable group classes on offer. Make the most of Pilates, yoga and t’ai chi to work on your core strength and posture, or for something faster paced, take part in aerobics, spinning or boot camp classes. If you’d rather have a more tailor-made experience, there’s also the option to book a session with an onboard personal trainer.
